DIY Tweed Recycled Pirouline Tins for Father's Day
If you aren't familiar with it, Tweed is a "rough, woolen fabric, of a soft, open, flexible texture, resembling cheviot or homespun, but more closely woven. It is usually woven with a plain weave, twill or herringbone structure."
I plan on filling one of these up with candies to give to my Dad on Father's day!
Here's how to make your own:
- Empty Pirouline Tins
- Tweed Fabric
- Hot Glue
- Black Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brush
1. Start by cutting a piece of tweed down to fit your tin. You want it to wrap all the way around, and go up to where the lid closes.
2. Use hot glue to adhere the tweed around the tin.
3. Use black acrylic paint to color your lids black. You could do these any color you wish, I just liked the simple black paint, that makes the suits stand out.
The tie is just a simple cut out shape.
Bow-ties are also pretty easy.
- Cut a 6" x 1" strip of felt.
- Glue the 2 ends to the middle, so you have 2 loops.
- Pinch the middle.
- Glue a 1/2"x3" strip of felt around the middle.
5. To finish them off, adhere your tie/bow-tie on and add on buttons!
For the red tie suit, I also added on a felt collar. To do that I simply cut a 1" strip of tan felt to wrap around the top of the tin.
These worked up in no time at all and I am so pleased with just how stinking cute they turned out. I hope my Dad likes them!
